I have been wanted to get another yellow stone in a somewhat bigger size than I usually get in gemstones. I decided to look into chrysoberyl after reading a bunch of threads and seeing the bright color and how it always is untreated I decided to browse. As I was browsing I fell in love with this stone from Africa Gems 1.35ct cushion medium lemony neon yellow they call it, and measures 6.3mm. It does look more yellow and you can see a sligthly greenish tint in some lightings.

Here is the vendor pic

Some pictures in indirect sunlight that shows off it's personality

Settings I am deciding on to set it in, but will wait till end of summer to set it
The top one is my first choice, but there is a price difference between both, the top one being more expensive

Thanks. Yes I love it. I like how the second pic is more accurate to the vendor photo, but then it also can change to a golden yellow to. It is also the perfect medium color and the cut is awsome :)

Very pretty- love the cushion shape. I like both settings but prefer the first setting you posted. I think your lovely chrysoberyl would look stunning in that setting.

So I wanted peoples opinions on the setting for my chrysoberyl in case my first choice, the first pic below doesn't look good with a square cushion in it since it looks like it's for a longer cushion shape but i am hopeful. Which would you prefer second im am having a hard time deciding? Thanks :)
